The eating scene in West Palm Beach is about to get a little more interesting with the debut of Eat-Scene, a combination gourmet market-slash-restaurant space set to debut in December at the corner of Quadrille Boulevard and Fern Street.

The brainchild of long-time county resident Tony Solo, Eat-Scene is said to be loosely based on such similar venues as New York’s Eataly and Seattle’s Pike’s Market. Look for 20 or so different independently owned businesses under the Eat-Scene roof, from purveyors of produce, meat and seafood to gourmet spices, chocolates and baked good, along with four different “micro eateries,” a deli and an outdoor beer garden.

The idea, according to Eat-Scene’s website, is to create a “market culture for wine and food enthusiasts” and a “social venue that appeals to all your senses.” Which sounds pretty good to me.
